About Judy

As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

Gameplay combines the unique talents of all three orphans to keep them one step ahead of their distant uncle, the evil Count Olaf, who'll stop at nothing to get his greedy hands on their family fortune.

Features:

  • Be The Baudelaires — The player can switch between the three Baudelaire orphans throughout the game, playing as Violet the inventor, Klaus the brave intellect, or as Sunny, the biting baby. Some missions are designed to take advantage of a specific character's abilities.

  • Invent To Prevail — The orphans will gather objects throughout the adventure to build ingenious inventions for solving tricky puzzles or for fending off Olaf's creepy cohorts – a word which here means people who are dreadful enough to consider Count Olaf a friend. Inventions include the Bopper to clear enemies from your path, the Stilts to maneuver through toxic goop and the Booster for jet-powered jumping.

  • Vanquish The Villains — Defeat Count Olaf and his wicked henchmen who assume many disguises in their never-ending pursuit of the Baudelaire orphans and their family fortune.

  • Experience The Adventures — Players will engage in over 17 different missions based on the adventures from the movie and the first three books; exploring Count Olaf's mysterious mansion, navigating Uncle Monty's intricate hedge maze and racing from Aunt Josephine's rickety house before it plummets into Lake Lachrymose.
